I have been unmotivated in regards to reading and blogging. I am in a slump. It is not that I have lost interest in these hobbies but rather a dispassion towards our current society. I have stated it before but one’s emotional state can really affect my reading experience and an orange has done it to me. I haven’t been responding to comments, rarely picked up my kindle, and thus failed at the Winter’s Respite Readathon. Typically, when I am in a slump I pick up Harry Potter, it is my “happy book” and usually gets me out of any funk. I realize it happens to everyone and in time it will pass, but in the interim it is a horrible feeling for a voracious reader.
I ask you fellow book bloggers, what gets you into a slump, is it environmental, personal feelings or commitments or is the book just not doing it for you? Also, how do you get back on the horse, does it pass with time, reread a favorite book, switch genres, I’m up for advice.
